VINTAGE MAGNIFICENT HUGE BRASS SWAN HOOK, ROBE HOOK, CLOTHES HOOK OR CURTAIN TIE BACK
A vintage silvery with black accents brass swan which has been used for a robe hook, closet purse hook or drapery tie back.
If you wish, it could be spray painted to match the other bathroom accessories in your bathroom but I think it is very pretty this way with the black accents. There is a felt with cardboard backing to the swan with a hole that can be hooked on a screw. (Shown in a photo). There are 2 slim strips of double faced tape inside the metal swan base which hold the backing to it.
There is a little round spot on the top of the neck of the swan which is a bit rough as though something was removed. But it will be difficult to see when it is hooked onto the door as it will pretty high. The wing span on the swan is so elegant and beautiful. The round base is embossed with bows with long ties and garlands. The swan is pretty heavy as it weighs between 2-1/2 lbs - 2-3/4 lbs.
It was difficult to measure but from the top of a wing to the rounded point at the bottom is 8-5/8", diameter of the disk in back is 4-1/4", from the back of the base to the end of the beak 8". I have another swan clothes hook from the Waldorf Astoria which was salvaged in 1970 which is also under the "Household Vintage & New category."
It would be very elegant as well as handy on the bathroom door to hang your robe when showering or a purse hook in your closet or curtain tie back!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
